Why Does This Site Exist?

The aim of the archive is to help you learn folk songs by providing you with the guitar chords, the lyrics and a recording that you can play along to. The site also tries to tell you a little about each song's context - where it comes from and its history.  It doesn't claim to achieve total accuracy all of the time, nor does it have a monopoly on knowledge about folk songs.  Most of what you'll read is garnered from other websites.  Wikipedia and The Mudcat Cafe are two frequently used sources.
